Has anyone had inpatient treatment despite having a normal BMI? Does anyone know of week long inpatient treatment centres?

My eating disorder is completely taking over my life but i look healthy from the outside and therefore struggle to get it identified as a problem. I'm also struggling to find any qualified in South West/West London to help me, i have an incredibly busy job and can only make evenings. Can anyone help me?

Cardinal Clinic in Maidenhead may be able to help. They did some good work with my daughter.


It may be worth seeing if there is a BEAT support group available in your area ( This is not professional help but having the support of others with an ED may help.

Have you talked with your GP? I was wondering whether he/she would be happy to refer you to the Mental Health Services if he/she isn't willing to refer you to specialist Eating Disorders place. To be honest I think I have found my counsellor in the general mental health services more helpful than the ED ones. In my area the mental Health people will do telephone counselling in the evenings.
